Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Flamini's performance against Sunderland

Arsenal Emirates 3

Arsenal defeated Sunderland this weekend but what did Gunners fans make of the French midfielder's contribution?

Arsenal overcame a resilient Sunderland side 3-1 on Saturday despite seeing Olivier Giroud gift the Black Cats an equaliser late in the first half.

Joel Campbell had opened the scoring for the Gunners before Giroud put through his own net, but the French international made up for that mistake by scoring at the right end shortly after the hour-mark.

Welsh international Aaron Ramsey put the icing on the cake with a late third and that ensured Arsenal took full advantage of Manchester City’s surprising slip-up against Stoke City earlier in the day.

With Francis Coquelin out injured, countryman Mathieu Flamini started for Arsenal, making just his sixth Premier League appearance of the campaign.

Arsenal have suffered a raft of injuries in recent weeks but at least they have players with the experience of Flamini to come in if needed.
